DBY 3 For the lips of the strange woman drop honey, and her mouth is smoother than oil; NIV 3 For the lips of the adulterous woman drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil; DBY 4 but her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword. NIV 4 but in the end she is bitter as gall, sharp as a double-edged sword. DBY 5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on Sheol. NIV 5 Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave. DBY 6 Lest she should ponder the path of life, her ways wander, she knoweth not [whither]. NIV 6 She gives no thought to the way of life; her paths wander aimlessly, but she does not know it. DBY 7 And now, children, hearken unto me, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
